Go with confidence

Suit performance to your sensibilities, with three engines and manual or automatic transmissions to choose from. Engine selection comprises 1.6- and 2.4-litre petrol with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) system, and a 2.0-litre petrol. The VVT system varies the length of intake port in response to the engine speed, which realises greater torque in broader ranges as well as better fuel efficiency.

With its powerful engines and transmissions, the Grand Vitara enables you to call the shots. Whether gliding over smooth surfaces or roughing it out on rugged terrain, you will feel the excitement of being behind the wheel. Confident in your vehicle, you are ready to go where your desires take you.

Transmission Increase fuel economy and sporty performance with the five-speed manual transmission. New output-reduction design enhances shift feeling and durability, with reduced vibration. 6

Automatic transmissions feature sporty shift-gate configurations, plus gear ratios tuned for satisfying acceleration, a smooth, quiet ride and effort-free operation. 7

4-mode 4WD

The Grand Vitara’s 4-mode 4WD system transmits power to all four wheels at all times, ensuring positive traction regardless of road surface. A dial built into the centre console lets you quickly and easily change modes between 4H for most driving conditions, 4H Lock for serious off-roading, 4L Lock for extreme surface conditions, and N (neutral) mode, specifically intended for motor home owners wishing to take along an SUV on camping trips to use as a runabout. Switching to N-mode frees the transmission for safe and effortless towing of the Grand Vitara.

Built-in Ladder Frame The “Built-in Ladder Frame” which integrates a ladder frame to a monocoque body increases rigidity and durability without adding to overall weight. This lightweight, one-piece body also reduces overall and floor heights, increasing cabin space despite its high ground clearance. Adding in the fully independent suspension further enhances resistance to twisting and flexing while contributing to linear handling response for smoother on-road cruising and impressive off-road traction. The bottom line for driver and passengers is the freedom to go where you will and the stability to enjoy every minute of it.


Expand your boundaries Based on Suzuki’s long tradition of developing reliable 4WDs,

the Grand Vitara is a powerful and versatile vehicle that offers solid on- and off-road performance. There is no limit to where you can go in search of fun and adventure—except, perhaps, the limit on your own time!

With a transfer gear ratio nearly twice that of 4H Lock mode at 1.970, this low-range 4WD mode ensures enough low-end traction to get out of extremely difficult conditions.

The fully independent suspension features front MacPherson struts and rear multi-link geometry, complementing the “Built-in Ladder Frame” and decreasing body noise while increasing on-road response and off-road handling.
